The LG Spectrum 2 has remained a mystery ever since an official render leaked last month. But now we have some new pictures partially showing the device, coming from the folks at Engadget. These images show off the accessories that come with the smartphone, so we have docks, car mounts and cases. While this doesn’t necessarily tell us a lot about the device itself, it certainly makes us believe that a formal launch is closer. Verizon also has the LG Intuition prepared for launch, which is a 5-inch phablet prepping launch on its network. So combined with the Intuition, the Spectrum 2 could well be LG’s best droids in the American market right now.
From what we know about the Spectrum 2, it is clear that it’s a high end device with support for LTE to satisfy the needs of the data hungry users in the country. The Spectrum 2 is also the American version of the Korea-only Optimus LTE 2 which boasts of some insane hardware specs. The exact arrival of the Spectrum 2 still remains unknown, but we figure it shouldn’t be long from now.
The LG Spectrum 2 will feature a brilliant 4.7-inch IPS True HD display and is accompanied by an 8MP camera sensor as well a 1.3MP front facing camera. There’s a good 1GB of RAM on board too, though users would have preferred 2GB like in the Korean variant. With a 2,150 mAh battery powering the device, users are promised of a prolonged battery life. Android 4.0 is believed to be running on board with LG’s standard Optimus UI on top. The dual core Snapdragon S4 chip on the Spectrum 2 should well give quad core chips a run for their money.
It is unfortunate that a device like the Spectrum 2 is still not in the market, especially since the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X are well established. LG and Verizon shouldn’t wait too long to launch the device as it could potentially spoil its own party by arriving late in the market. The market is looking forward to the Galaxy Note 2 and a few other droids, so let’s hope the Spectrum 2 doesn’t get lost in the midst of them.
